Lenovo Just Made A 6-Legged Robot Covered In Cameras

Lenovo is expanding the scope of its robots and enhancing its outreach to the public, government, and other entities. The robots are designed for improved maneuverability and stability across various terrains, enabling them to undertake tasks that the previous models were not capable of.

With three cameras or sensors on top, considering the robot’s face, and additional visualization technology included, the advanced version also comes with extra features that enable it to grab objects and conduct surveillance.

Additionally, the robot is waterproof, dustproof, and able to withstand high-pressure water jets. The bot is primarily aimed at the government and public sector in Asia. It could also be used in trade and industry sectors, potentially replacing and perhaps augmenting human workers. The design shift, i.e., from gear-shaped wheels to six-jointed legs, has been introduced. It offers more stability and terrain adaptation, enabling it to take on tasks more effectively and efficiently.

However, there are speculations that the renewed model with advanced features such as more terrain adaptability and the ability to grab objects on hand will make it more operational but, on the other hand, may be used in controversial roles such as law enforcement or military, given that there is already an increase of AI technology and robots in these sectors worldwide. This reinforces the calls by many industry practitioners and programmers to set ethical standards and parameters so that the technology is used to advance humanity.
